    The Official 2012 Nick Swisher Performance Thread

    Mods - forgive me if there is already one butI did not see it.

    Can we discuss Swisher's performance? He looks terrible at the plate and that slide last night was absymal. Really he should have never been sent (cannot recall if he was getting the green light or not) considering there were less than 2 outs and the big part of the lineup coming up and I would have taken my chances with a sac fly or better.

    It's a contract year and I'm a big Swisher fan so I am really hoping he pulls it together.

    I really like Swisher but he doesn't look good so far. Hope he doesn't spend his whole contract year pressing.

    His hits have looked lucky. And he's been hacking.

    That three run bomb wasn't lucky, although it was a meatball.

    I wonder if the groin is bothering him.

    He has all of 19 ABs. Not sure I'd write him off just yet.

    He was sent and had little option at home as Weiters was waiting for him with the ball. No much he could do in that situtaion. If you want blame the 3B coach for sending slow footed Nick go ahead but I'd have probably sent him too on that one.

    the rest is just details.

    1) That slide was completely on Thompson. It was a terrible call. No outs, tied game, and with the middle of your lineup coming up. You better be sure he scores standing up.

    2) He had a terrible 2 months of the season (.626 April & .671 May) last year and still put up decent numbers.

    3) He's still walking and slugging and has a OPS+ 155

    Swisher absolutely destroyed the ball in the 10th inning, and that moonshot propelled the Yankees to victory.

    I really hope we see a lot more of these in the coming months.
